Losing a small Asian Woman...

I've been asked to give another update on here it is:

It's been 19 weeks since my gastric bypass surgery...and I currently weigh 165lbs!!! That's a whoppin' 80 pounds weight loss!!! (Kelly says that I lost the equivalent of a small Asian woman...this is meant to be funny so laugh!) I know that I am not through losing weight, however, I can tell you with all honesty that if this is where the Lord wants me at, I will be more than happy to be here!!! One of these days I will need to write about all the things I've learned and experienced and grown over the past few months...but not today...

I had my sweet husband take a picture of me on Sunday...and here's what I currently look like:

Here's me June 25, 2008...right after the surgery...with my handy-dandy morphine pump (which, btw, was GREAT until I got the HORRIBLE morphine headaches...and I will never take morphine again!!)...In case you're wondering, I am 5'6" and I weighed 245lbs the day I went into surgery...I went into surgery with 4 co-morbidities (I have since been healed from TWO!!!---PRAISE THE LORD!!)
